The 2801 is fine for basic needs, although you will lack the NM module should you want to expand into something like CCNA Voice where you need the Unity Express module. You want at least two routers though.
As far as switches go, even the 2950 is fine for most uses. It only gets iffy when you move into the CCNP level.
I'm preparing my self for CCENT and I wonder what are your thoughts on what could I buy to create my own lab.
Any suggestions?(reasonable price)
I received your email. Somehow I cannot refind it.
Like to give you a quote as you requested, so please sent your requst and contactinfo again so we can make contact.
Best to have a phone-number where I can reach you.
Perhaps I can help to get the best Switch for your needs.
But the one I offer will be with big discount and garantee.
As you know we are one of the biggest in the world.
If not...you know now :-)
